Brotherly love

I just wanted to pop by and give everyone a quick update on how things are going with the boys; my c-section made it difficult for me to get in and out of bed on my own, making it virtually impossible for me to tend to Charlie's needs at night, so Charlie had been staying in my mom's room with her while she was here.  Well, she returned to Pennsylvania on Wednesday last week, and I was feeling a lot better, so Charlie made the move into the master bedroom and has been doing well ever since--he actually only gets up once in the night for a feeding and then usually goes right back to sleep; I credit the a/c unit's white noise for just how easy of a transition this has been so far.  He's a super easy baby--possibly even more easy-going than Sammy was as a newborn, which is saying a lot (knock on wood).

In other news, Sammy has come to the realization that Charlie is here to stay in a mostly positive way, although his whining has increased about a hundred fold in the interim.  There's no jealousy per se, but I've noticed that Sammy tends to become more insistent in his demands whenever I'm unable to do anything for him, like when I'm feeding Charlie.  If anyone has any tips or tricks for keeping a toddler occupied while I'm indisposed, I'd really appreciate it (I've already ruled out more extreme measures, such as duct taping him to the wall).  Have a great Labor Day!

Yay! for easy babies!! (it really does make a difference, doesn't it?) And like Sammy, Nick is starting to not be too fond of feeding times... poor kid:( I wish I had some advice for that, but what I usually do is ask him "Where's Max?" and off he goes. But I've heard of people having a small bin of toys/books that is strictly for nursing time. I guess the intent is those toys stay special because of the limited play time with them, as opposed to geting used to them quickly because they're just in with all the other toys. Although I'm not above tossing the boys in their baby-gated room if I need to! :)

Such a cute photo. Not that I did this, but I was thinking how about a little toy bag that you could pull out at feeding time? You could get a few things at the dollar store or a couple of board books or something. Only take it out at feeding time so it's special. Just a thought!
